Movirtu

September 2010 - March 2011

Overview

Movirtu provides innovative mobile cloud technology to wireless telecommunication providers servicing rural poor communities in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. The company provides the rural poor with their own private number through shared access of basic mobile phone services at a much lower cost than has been achieved before. Through interviews with the phone service’s users and village phone operators who sell the service, WDI identified a holistic set of potential impacts and provided Movirtu with recommendations on how to track and quantify the impacts identified during the strategic analysis.
